BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – The Russian Federation has allegedly warned Israel against launching any more attacks near the Damascus International Airport, Al-Quds Al-Araby reported on Friday.
Citing Russian military officials, the London-based publication claimed that Moscow warned the Israeli forces against attacking east Damascus as they were preparing to renovate the airport.
The unnamed Russian officials also told the publication that Israeli attacks were causing problems for airlines that were hoping to resume their flights to the Damascus International Airport in the near future.
